Performing a visual inspection of a house in Nashville TN and came across this gem.

Homeowner complains of inability to regulate house temperature, odors, discomfort, and some sinus / health issues.

See photo below - the standard non existent vapor barrier, completely disconnected return plenum...within 8" of end of return plenum is a dead, decaying possum.

Great photo -- beats most of the animal-related issues I've seen.
